If you’re in the market for a new smartphone, then it’s absolutely worth considering the Google Pixel lineup of devices. Google Pixel phones are known for their groundbreaking cameras, super smart features, and clean software – and Best Buy is offering the Verizon Google Pixel 2 XL at a huge discount. The phone originally cost $850, but you can buy it for just $200 for a limited time.
For those of you who aren’t on Verizon, Amazon is selling a refurbished Pixel 2 XL for just $320 and the smaller refurbished Pixel 2 for just $300.
The Google Pixel 2 XL is Google’s flagship phone for 2017, and it’s still an awesome device. It boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It also has smart features like the Google Assistant. Sure, it’s not quite as powerful as the new Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL, but it’s still a very solid phone at a very impressive price.
It’s important to note that to take advantage of the Best Buy deal, you will have to pay for it in 24 monthly installments of $8.32, and you will need to be on Verizon’s network or be willing to make the switch to Verizon. The discounts total $650.16, and include $450 in instant savings from Best Buy, plus $8.33 in monthly bill credits for 24 months.
If you’re okay with that fine print, then this is absolutely an incredible deal, and well worth taking advantage of if you want a great phone at a very reasonable price.
